Ryan Lochte

Partying at the Playboy Mansion

With Fellow U.S. Swimmers!

2/27/2015 8:02 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0227-ryan-lochte-playboy-twitterTeam USA swimmer Ryan Lochte crossed an item off his bucket list Thursday night ... after spending the night partying at the legendary Playboy Mansion!  

Lochte hit up Hugh Hefner's place with fellow U.S. swimmers Conor Dwyer and Cullen Jones ... who was out celebrating his 31st birthday. 

No word if the guys had any luck with the ladies who frequent the property ... but at least they got in the door ... and that should count for something, right?

Ed Sheeran

Album of the Year Leads to

Drunken Night of His Life

2/26/2015 8:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0226_ed_sheeran_brit_awards_party_photos_launch_2Ed Sheeran celebrated his Album of the Year win at the BRIT Awards by drinking ALL OF THE ALCOHOL IN LONDON ... or so it seems based on these crazy pics of his night.

Sheeran was spotted all over town Wednesday night -- first hitting up an after-party at Freemasons' Hall and then venturing to The Box Nightclub with Sam Smith.

They reportedly stayed out until 6 AM -- which is obvious from the look on Ed's face at the end of this gallery.

After winning his first award of the night, Sheeran told the show's hosts, "I've got to perform and then I'll drink. Don't film me later."

No film ... but the pics are awesome.

Wiz Khalifa

Blunts & Strippers Do a Daddy Good

2/25/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Wiz Khalifa Partying StrippersAmber Rose wouldn't let Wiz Khalifa throw a birthday party with their kid -- according to Wiz -- so he settled for a wild party with strippers.

According to our strip club sources -- and these photos we obtained -- Wiz was droppin hundos Monday night alongside Snoop Dogg and Ty Dolla $ign at L.A.'s Ace Of Diamonds.

We're told the crew let tens of thousands slip through the g-string adorned cracks that night.

This probably won't help Wiz win his war with Amber -- or earn him a parent of the year award.

Then again ... strippers' kids gotta eat too.

ALL HAIL KING JOFFE JOFFER  ... 'cause Snoop Dogg straight up transformed into the ruler of Zamunda last night for an INSANE "Coming to America" themed bday party for his son ... and we've got in the footage!!

Snoop threw the mega-bash to celebrate his 18-year-old football star son Cordell Broadus (who just committed to UCLA) ... recreating the famous wedding scene from the 1988 Eddie Murphy flick.

There were dancers ... there were rose petal throwers ... there was even a THRONE!!!

You gotta watch the video ... it's one of the craziest things we've ever seen.

BTW, we know what you're thinking ... and no, we have no idea if Cordell got himself a bath too.

Oscars

Would You Like a

Lime or Cockroach in Your Drink?

EXCLUSIVE

0218_disgustin_dolby_theatre_launch-3
A gaggle of stars will hit the bars at the Oscars Sunday as the show goes on, and on ... but those bars have been filthy for weeks ... cockroaches, bugs and all.

TMZ has obtained video shot inside the Dolby Theater in Hollywood ... the home of the Academy Awards. We've created a series of screen grabs, which show various bars that look anything but inviting.

You see dead cockroaches, flying bugs, spoiled food on the floor, dirty sinks, garbage strewn on the floor, dirt and a moldy cream container. 

0218-fly-on-the-wall-GIF-TMZ-02The video was shot late last year but we're told by people who have been at the venue the conditions were unchanged as recently as 5 days ago.  

We're told the Heath Dept. last inspected the Dolby in June and gave it a clean bill of health.

We contacted managers at Dolby, but so far no word back.

"Birdman" may win in the main auditorium, but The Fly wins at the bar.

Wiz Khalifa

Wasted with Chicks

I'm Not Talkin' Amber Rose Tonight!

2/18/2015 7:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

021815_wiz_khalifa_launch_v2Wiz Khalifa stumbled out of a Hollywood club just before 2 AM Wednesday, and his posse railed at our photog for daring to ask the question Wiz himself raised about Amber Rose being a bad parent because she stays out too late.

Wiz was feeling no pain as he left Emerson Theatre. TMZ broke the story ... he's gearing up for a custody fight, claiming Amber Rose cares more about partying than parenting.

No doubt he has every right to party when he isn't taking care of 1-year-old Sebastian, but listen to the outrage from his friends when the subject is raised.

Meanwhile back at the ranch Trinidad Carnival, Amber Rose is partying it up in barely any clothing.

Thank God for nannies.

Rick Ross and Meek Mill

Brawl Breaks Out

During 'All Star' Club Gig

EXCLUSIVE

021415_rick_ross_launch

A brawl erupted between a group of guys who picked a fight with Rick Ross and Meek Mill at a club Friday night ...  so claim eyewitnesses who say the rappers got physical during the "All Star" weekend scuffle.

The eyewitnesses say Ross and Mill were in the same section at NYC's Liberty Theatre when someone threw a drink and the scuffle erupts.

We're told Meek threw a few punches and Rick seemed to confine his activity to pushing.  On the other hand, we're told Rick's bodyguards took care of business.

Ross was hosting the party and in the video you see Rozay standing near the fight.

The party was also attended by Oklahoma City Thunder player Dion Waiters.

Cops were not called.

Meek Mill

It's Just a Little Crack ...

I Didn't Trash Glass House

2/10/2015 3:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0210_meek_mills_house_damage_launchMeek Mill's Grammy party guests didn't trash Justin Bieber's famous glass palace -- they merely left a few cracks, according to Mill's attorney ... but there's still a war brewing over his $10K deposit. 

Mill's attorney, Richard Joseph, denies leaving the mansion -- formerly rented by Bieber -- in shambles following the epic bash on Sunday night. He says there was a minor window crack, and a few scuffs on the walls ... but nothing that would qualify as "trashing."

Sources with direct knowledge of the lease for the house tell a much different story. TMZ obtained photos that appear to back up claims the place looked like a war zone, with damage including:

- a kicked in door with shattered windows

- dead landscaping

- broken glass in the pool

- destroyed furniture and cigarette smoke damage

Joseph claims those damages were never mentioned to him, and no one raised the possibility of holding his deposit. He also points out ... his name is on the lease, NOT Meek's.

Our sources say, the leasing company is still totaling up the damage, and they intend to seek compensation.

Meek Mill Party

Bieber's Glass House Trashed

... Cops Called

2/10/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill Party Justin Bieber HouseMeek Mill took over Justin Bieber's glass mansion for Grammy weekend and threw a party so wild ... cops had to be called and the crib was destroyed when it was all said and done.

Mill hosted the massive Grammy after-party Sunday night -- Nicki Minaj, French Montana, Khloe Kardashian, Chris Brown and Justin were at the bash ... and sources inside tell us it got crazy when a fight broke out between rival gang members.

During the melee, we're told punches and even ice sculptures were tossed -- and most of the guests fled into the street. Law enforcement sources tell us ... cops were called around 1:30 AM for loud music, and found more than 1,000 people walking around the ritzy 'hood. It took about 3 hours to clear the streets.

No arrests were made, and police never went inside the house -- which was totally trashed. We're told Justin moved out last week, and Meek moved in ... signing a 1-week lease to lock down the party location.

We're guessing he can kiss that security deposit goodbye.

Nicki Minaj

I Didn't Block Birdman ...

Staying Neutral in Lil Wayne Beef

2/9/2015 6:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Nicki Minaj Birdman PartyNicki Minaj did NOT diss her boss Birdman by taking sides in his battle with Lil Wayne -- TMZ has learned the Cash Money CEO's denial from her pre-Grammy party was just a case of bad timing.

Sources close to Minaj tell us ... Birdman was only denied from 1OAK nightclub because the mogul's posse was looking to order bottle service, and the club was closing in 15 minutes.

On top of that, we're told Nicki had already left and the houselights were on in the club.

Sources tell us Nicki -- as well as Drake -- have made a point to stay out of the ongoing legal beef between Weezy and Baby ... even though Wayne says he's taking them with him when he leaves Cash Money.

We're told Nicki and Drake are hoping their bosses can squash this before it gets too messy -- though that ship seems to have sailed long ago.

Pats' Malcolm Butler

Pulls a Gronk

Rages In Vegas Nightclub

EXCLUSIVE

Rob Gronkowski ain't the only guy on the Patriots who loves to party -- Super Bowl hero Malcolm Butler hit the club scene hard in Vegas last night ... and TMZ Sports has the pics!

Butler was the guest of honor at Chateau nightclub in the Paris Las Vegas -- where the 24-year-old got his own booth, his own custom champagne ... and his own personal cheerleaders. 

Multiple sources tell us Butler was super nice to everyone -- taking pics with fans and dancing all night long.

It's been a pretty good month for Butler -- as we previously reported, Chevy decided to give him a FREE TRUCK for making that game-saving interception in the Super Bowl.

Sounds like a reason to party to us .

Birdman

DENIED at Nicki Minaj Pre-Grammy Party

2/8/2015 8:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

020815_birdman_launch_v2Birdman and his very big crew were turned away from Nicki Minaj's pre-Grammy party in West Hollywood early Sunday, and cops raced over to make sure things didn't get out of hand.

There's talk Nicki is going to bail on Birdman's Cash Money and follow Lil Wayne, so the fact that the mogul was sent walking seems like a big deal.  He showed up at 1:45 AM and the club is supposed to close at 2, and you hear a guy at the door tell Birdman's posse the club was already closed. 

At the same time, there was a good 15 minutes left and Birdman's kind of a big deal, and that may be why you hear someone say that Nicki didn't want him in.

Either way ... he didn't get in.
